This is bloody good!

I watched this one YouTube and it was just like any other masterpiece movie. Some scenes are amazing, like when Stuart dropped the Game Child down to it's demise, and scenes where the characters talk for a long time. My favorite is the scene where Stuart ruins the Game Child. That might be the only visual effect in the movie. There is a CD counterfeit that shows that the movie is rated R. In the UK, it is rated PG by the BBFC or how about 12A? It is weird that the movie is R rated here because there is no, sex nor nudity, but there is violence and few profanity.

I highly recommend buying this movie, or simply find it on YouTube. I do not know why they made a DVD and Blu-Ray of a movie put on YouTube, but still.

I wanted to like this

Seeing the cover and subject, I though I'd be in for a nice little indie treat with 80s nostalgia and some laughs. However, this didn't have much of either (a little bit of nostalgia, zero laughs). Normally I wouldn't have cared enough to write a review about this, but because of all the other reviews giving it great scores I felt I had to give another perspective so people wouldn't get their hopes up.

I've never seen the YouTube series so I didn't know what to expect, but this film wasn't entertaining at all. I seemed like it was trying to be funny, but I couldn't really tell. I guess that's how bad the humour was, since it didn't even really register as humour. I don't remember laughing once. The story wasn't that great either. It was just things happening to move the plot along, but failed at doing it in an interesting way.

In the end I could only get through about half of the film before I had to stop due to lack of any entertainment whatsoever. I'm baffled at why there are so many good reviews. Perhaps friends of the crew? If not, then I'm happy they could find some entertainment in this since I certainly couldn't.

Don't say you weren't warned. I've seen good indie. This isn't it.

More than just fan service?

I am aware that this is essentially 80+ minutes of free content on Youtube. I still look at it as a feature length movie like the ones you go to the movie theatres to watch. Why not, right? Although it took them 3 weeks to film, it was still shot like a typical indie film.

Anyway, on with the review. As a moderate fan of Ashens' Youtube channel, I felt letdown by the end of this movie. The actual plot is ridiculous but they did manage to make it seem less cheesy than it actually is. However, the script was pretty terrible. I believe Ashens co-wrote it which makes me sad because I thought he would be a better script writer.

Visually, this movie was interesting even though there wasn't any noticeable CGI/special effects aside from one particular scene which I won't spoil. The animated intro was honestly probably the best part. If you don't want to watch the whole movie, at least just watch the animation bit.

Chris Kendall, Dan Tomlinson, and Ashens all did an excellent job in their roles. The rest of the cast was decent at best. I thought Warwick Davis would have had a much larger role.

If you're a fan of Ashens, you'll probably like this movie if only for the references. If you've never heard of the guy, don't bother. This is mostly fan service. (Which is fine. I enjoyed Game Child for what it was.)
